Suede Boots

Tuesday Shoesday: Buttoned Up

Sergio-Rossi-Spats-Buttoned-Boots

Sorry about the low quality image (my hand was shaking at the awkward ankle). The tone does kind of suit the style of the boots though, doesn’t it? A bit of vintage touch. Anyway, I spotted these gorgeous Stuart Weitzman Spat boots at Nordstrom Rack for the amazing clearance price of $174 (compared to $695 retail). The gold buttons sparkled at me from the shelves and I just had to try them on. They are very comfortable, and extremely easy to walk in despite the height of the heel. There’s a lot of extra cushioning inside, and the thicker heel makes them stable. Although the deal was too good to pass up, I did put them back on the shelves because they were slightly too large on my feet, even with thick socks on. But if you’re lucky enough to snag them, they’re sure to get you many compliments!

Tuesday Shoesday: Thigh High

Remember that fantastic Brian Atwood sale I wrote about? Well here’s the amazing deal I managed to snag! I can’t tell you how long I’ve been looking for the perfect thigh high boots. I love how elegant an outfit can look with properly styled tall boots, not to mention they are great for lengthening the legs. What frustrated me the most during my search is that a lot of boots this high (for the price I was willing to pay) are crafted of man-made materials, which in my opinion don’t look as sophisticated. Another issue I encountered was that most styles I tried on went up just barely over my knees. Imagine my excitement when I spotted the Kacey on sale. As much as I wanted a pair of heeled leather thigh highs, the practicality and versatility of these suede flat-soled boots won me over, not to mention the fantastic price. I couldn’t wait to wear these, and immediately pulled them on when they arrived just two days later. It’s a good thing the weather isn’t warming up yet, I plan on wearing these a lot! If you love them as much as I do, the Kacey is still available in dark brown suede. I keep telling myself I don’t need them in another color…
